Number of Servings: 6


    12 oz bow tie pasta
    4 oz (about 2 1/2 cups) baby spinach leaves
    1 can 14-oz small white beans, rinsed and drained
    1 can 10-oz fat-free chicken gravy
    2 tsp olive oil
    1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
    1 tbsp minced garlic
    1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary


EXTRA CREDIT: Top with grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley.


HOW TO MAKE IT: Cook the pasta according to the package directions. While the pasta is boiling, heat the oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers and cook for 4 minutes, or until soft. Add the garlic and the red pepper flakes to taste and cook for 1 minute. Add the spinach and reduce the heat to medium. Cover and cook for 2 to 4 minutes, or until wilted, stirring a few times. Dump in the beans, gravy, and rosemary. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes. Just before the pasta is done, transfer about 1/2 cup of the pasta water to the sauce. Drain the pasta and return it to the pasta pot. Add about 1/2 cup of the sauce to the pasta and mix to coat. Divide among 6 plates and top with the remaining sauce.
